The Best Kind of Craft

This week L and I are staying with his parents. Oh yes, and L’s brother, sister-in-law and their two (almost completely!) adorable children …

L’s brother and family live about 5-6 hours car journey away from us, so both visiting the parent’s home at the same time is a very good way to meet up … for L and I anyway, as we only have 1 1/2 hours to drive 😛


Grandma bought a box full of fun craft bits and bobs for me to play with my niece, A, who is three. So much fun!

This card was made especially for Grandma – A Busy Sea!


Meet (l-r) Ben and Rosie, the spiders A and I made – all according to A’s ideas and step-by-step instruction! I assure you, she knows exactly what should go where, at what time and with how much glue! 😉


Despite challenging my ingrained perfectionism, I had so much fun creating the pictures present in a three-year old’s mind out of pom-poms, wiggly-eyes and pipe-cleaners!!

  1. Thanks for doing the craft with Abi – Rosie and Ben didn’t survive the journey home but don’t tell her. And what do you mean ‘almost completely adorable’?!??!

    • You know, as I typed ‘alomst’, I thought I it might sound nasty … Sorry!! I love my niece and nephew very much and adore spoiling them and spending time with them … it was only at 2am in the morning when Sam was teething and Abi had un-jointed her finger, so both were screaming and I was wide awake after 3 previous night of my own lack of sleep, that I was grateful for not having my own kids yet …
